Wake Up Your Garden

It’s time to get things in full spring! Here's some of our top picks to wake up your garden.

Raspberry Blast Petunia
This new, breakthrough color in Petunias with pink blooms edged in deep cerise violet will make you say 'Wow'. Its trailing habit and low maintenance makes it a winner for both baskets and beds. Attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, this bubblegum pink bloom is a must have.

Royale Iced Cherry Verbena
In all shades of bright cherry pink, this Superbena is a vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant beauty. Great in containers this Verbena is also fantastic in landscape beds. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers.

Royale Chambray Verbena
Just like the light blue fabric, this verbena is a beautiful color and offers scent. As a superbena, is a vigorous, heat tolerant, and mildew tolerant beauty. Great in containers this Verbena is also fantastic in landscape beds. While naturally well branched, trimming them back will encourage additional branching, fuller plants, and ultimately more flowers.

Lemon Slice Milion Bells
Looking like little Petunias, the unique bicolor pattern of white and bright yellow make these million bells a sunny choice for your containers. Covered with hundreds of flowers in yellow and white from early spring all the way through those first light frosts. With long, trailing branches these blooms cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and other containers, and spread over flower beds. Plant in full sun and tolerates the heat well.

Caliente Hot Coral Geranium
With exceptional heat tolerance this coral geranium is certainly hot in the garden this spring. Thriving in full to part sun, it is pretty drought tolerant once established. This bold eye catching color gives new color to this traditional flower. In a container these geraniums really provide the wow factor.

Goldalia Dahlia
Produces an unusual orange bloom with white tips and large orangey yellow centers. As a prolific bloomer, this petite dahlia is short and compact but well branched. These blooms look great in the garden or as cut flowers on your dining room table.
